sent to a crowd protesting a white nationalist unite the right being held in charlottesville. president. this week we've launched a campaign to bring home russian speaking children. off of the liberation. and the trade between the u.s. and north korea international. genuine war. the main stories of the week the top headlines of today welcome to the weekly. violent street brawls in the u.s. state of virginia where one poster has been killed and more. than
a dozen injured when a car rammed into a group of people protesting against a white nationalist rally centered around the removal of a confederate statue the driver has been arrested and charged with second degree murder we should warn you that the upcoming video is graphic. her friend people. start to show the world there's room ready but he will. try to get over. it was intentional the crack was open that he was going to see intentional tears right behind me is the side of the incident that happened today hundreds of counter
protesters were coming down the street and went to make a left up this alley here you can see two cars still parked here they haven't been removed those two cars were there as the protesters were walking and stopped to let them through at the same time a third car came down the alley and plowed through the protesters hitting the two cars that are still here behind me at that point he then reversed back up the alley again coming through the protesters many witnesses say that people were thrown in the air due to the force of the impact he then fled the scene but has since been arrested and been identified as twenty year old james fields of ohio one woman was killed in the incident thirty two year old whose identity has yet to have been released one thousand others were injured throughout the day there have been many clashes seen in charlottesville between the white nationalists and the anti-gay protesters the counter protesters here in the city. thank you very.
much. the governor of virginia also spoke about the attack after it happened about how this is not representative of his city the hatred and rhetoric that has gone on. it's intensified over the last couple months is dividing this great nation the protests actually started on friday night and continued in on saturday saturday a state of emergency was declared for the city and actually all of the assemblies were declared unlawful and police were trying to break them up here in the city there was a very heavy police presence with many in riot gear and the virginia national guard was also here as well. protests in general they were started in reaction to the idea that confederate monuments here in the city would be taken down white
nationalist came here to protest that happening. so today's classrooms in charlottesville have become one of the bloodiest incidents to date over the removal of a confederate monument a pepper spray buttons and makeshift weapons were used in brawls between far right demonstrate his and counter protest as we understand more than thirty people injured school was arrested and then a separate incident a police helicopter that was monitoring the rally crashed outside the town killing two offices of the u.s. president meantime his voice his concern over the standoff in virginia we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many sites on many sites it's been going on for a long time in our country not donald trump not barack obama. it's been going on for a long long time if the k.k.k.
car team were going down there to start a fight shame on them if they were if that was done in the guise of a charity that charity should be revoked and severely disciplined same for the anti for if there are people behind and who are are funding it through through charities which i suspect they may be and in provoking violence around the country even in this in the minutes that have passed between the time i was asked to come on the show i walked about a mile through places in new york where there are already protests they do not look very spontaneous to me they have printed flags printed placards you know i think people on both sides are spoiling for a fight here and we ought to think very carefully about what actually happened find out who may be guilty of what offenses best to get them and punish them accordingly before we leap to a conclusion as to what may have happened amidst the violence in virginia some continue to blame deep divisions in american society and politics. it's about you
and i do we stand divided people but i've. got to get back to i respect people who pageant. democrats. one of the reasons i won the election is very very divided nation. it is not international forty eight russian speaking children are stuck at an all finish in iraq after the liberation of mosul from islamic state they were reportedly smuggled into the country by their parents who joined i saw in iraq the parents have now either been killed all fled iraqi forces leaving their children behind so on tuesday launched a campaign to find relatives of the children and bring their kids are.
mosul was a nightmare charnel house that orphaned generations not just iraqis take this baghdad shelter that we filmed here live the children of i still victims together with the children of i still fighters. to turn them. on. someone. else could just. put. these harrowing words touched people's hearts my heart broke watching this story will make
a humble but honestly living will gladly provide for those children should the remain displaced it's nice country here in australia and the children would be loved. and mixed with the messages of support that we received the claims from alleged relatives take little and leave his aren't in russia recognised him the family desperately wants him back telling us how his parents had apparently joined i sell only to die and disappear this is their last photo together notice islamic states black flag in the corner clearly let me give you that.
then there's five year old who deja vu. three year old fatima their parents joined i sold two years ago and were killed in a drone strike in june tells us their grandfather he says a seven year old girls living next door to him recognized fatima and him teacher from our video and that he can't wait to see his beloved grandchildren again for the new york and these. thirty local. little. they're lucky. they're old enough to speak to know their names but what about the many orphaned children too we young to speak much less know their names because.
in the specific order the final. thing is important. words. even if their relatives know them it is only from photographs as an example one woman believes she recognized her grandson in our video by his eyes clearly someone could be took to the new sixty. special national compassion. there are forty eight russian speaking children in iraq you often ages that we know of and we continue receiving messages from potential relatives but this is just the tip of the iceberg. we'll continue to try and find more of these youngsters in the hope that more of them can be reunited with their families back here in russia. or i guess the.
from dagestan russia. barely a day has passed this week without a fresh exchange of threats between the u.s. and north korea. maybe it was. now this all comes off the last week the u.n. security council unanimously approved sweeping new sanctions against north korea exports of coal metals and food to other u.n. member states all have been restricted and countries will not be allowed to increase the number of north korean laborers they employ and foreign investment has blocked it's thought the measures will dent the north economy by about one billion
dollars a year. now the confrontation between the two military powers has provoked negative international reaction or russia says the risks of war are high beijing is warning against playing with fire over north korea beijing added that any accidental spot could trigger a conflict germany also believes that escalation is the wrong answer and experts told us and kim jong un should tone down the rhetoric. what this can't be is an ego fight and right now what it felt like was a fight between trump on one side and kim on the other and to see who could make more outlandish statements and the fear is that if somebody flinches if somebody screws up there could be hundreds of thousands of dead people here this is a very real fight this is shockingly dangerous and the last thing we need to do is stand down and start bumping chests and talk about who's the bigger man with the president's rhetoric i think it's it's two leaders exchanging bombastic terms
it would be a disaster a total disaster an arms race right on the peninsula even china does not want that that's why we need to tone down this rhetoric in these folks and and try to get them to talk reasonably rather than being bombastic all the time and creating tensions however a home trumps approval rating is going to boost amid the tough talks with north korea its popularity has jumped six point three one pyongyang would face repercussions one reason why trump's aggressive rhetoric is popular in the u.s. maybe because polls show over sixty percent of americans view north korea as a very serious threat but can that surely find the thread on a map is. not scared of of north korea i'm not scared i'm scared of who our leaders are in many countries and how they're behaving they're not asleep behaving in the interest of of the people fully is becoming more of a bird votto and any time you're dealing with them in
a country that's led by your irrational dictator i think you would you compare for the worst yes pretty threatening and we responded in a threatening way that scary feeling north korea is a threat to the united states i don't think so my paranoid no but i definitely feel that north korea is a potential definite threat i think north korea is a serious threat to the region but not to the united states you point to north korea on this map. there no that's that's siberia ok. there that's that's still siberia. and it's that southeast asia that's you know that's like vietnam. man mark there you go yeah that nets that's right i knew that she would get it and you find north korea on this map of the world all that's australia actual oh well north korea. southeast asia that's cambodia that's. ok so it's here that's australia where
someone at saudi arabia forget me i'm hopeless it's. around here around there yeah you're right that's that's north rim right there you go you got it there you are like it's close somewhere furthermore it turns out there's actually a correlation between knowing where north korea is and favoring military action those who don't know where the country is are actually more likely to want to send troops right now millions of americans are convinced that north korea is out to get them and it seems like those who are the least in the know are the ones running the most scared ok with mop and r.t. new york you're watching the weekly here naughty international thanks for joining us so for many more of your week's top stories on today's headlines offer a very short break.
what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and. somehow want. to go right to be close this is what before three of the more people. interested always in the waters in the. city. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around. washington washington media the media. business to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before.
thanks for joining us here on r.t. international today we have spoken to a palestinian father and his son who say they were brutally beaten by israeli police in east jerusalem and they describe the video of the incident which shortly afterwards online. if the house would agree to open a neighbor's house without any reason this is not my house and i do not have the key to it he still yelling at me and at the same time not the soldiers accompanying him it's a break my friends. was . no sign of them it was time to talk mentioned there was
a pleasure to have. there were five to six people they were employees of the special forces tanks me twisted my hands behind my back and began to beat me. i am not over for it also. was not there oh never sure but saw her. and they beat me hold on the head it sharply twisted my right hand behind my back and started to beat it insistently so that it was for. a bit and his fifteen year old son ahmed told us that after being beaten they were taken to the police station and held for two days however at no point did anyone explain to them why they had actually been detained in the first place. they first asked into a car and drove to the police station they kept beating and insulting as during the right at this station they confiscated our clothes one officer asked me to stand
near a wall and smash my head against a two car fingerprints took my father away i was kept at the station for ten days for the hell it has. but they didn't explain why they had beaten us we didn't attack them noisey me nor my son did nothing to us the incident comes amid growing concern over israel's treatment of palestinians in east jerusalem human rights watch warns the practice over moving residency from palestinians may ultimately about to that of a war crime. now the rights group issued a reporting reporting i should say actually warning about the growing number of revocations in fact in recent decades israel has stripped over fourteen thousand palestinians of their residency permits human rights watch says that residency guarantee civil rights to palestinians so when the. they are forced to leave their homes. the work crime in question is the forcible importation of the occupied if
that protected population. is part of the occupy territory here we're not talking about people forced to leave their home at the point to we're talking about policies that in fact forced people to leave despite concerns from rights groups israel gives a number of justifications for its actions of already say residency right so usually removed when jerusalem is no longer the people's main place of residence however in recent years palestinians have also been stripped of their rights for attacking israelis but also as punishment against relatives of suspected attackers . they are stripped of their residency they are therefore they can no longer work legally there are social benefits insurance medical insurance retirement plans are in check pretty they can't marry and have their spouse with them so all of these
things motivate people to if you will salt if they're not physically kicked out and we deemed that is kind of policy that forces people to stop the war amounts to the same war crime this never happens to citizens of israel specifically jewish citizens so this is part of this policy. israel to clears the earth the city of jerusalem should be a united city but it's in practice not united at all there is to policies for the two peoples. a group in the u.k. calling itself the x. muslim council has been stirring controversy this week members attended an l g b t parade in london on tuesday they held up by those denouncing islam and accusing muslims of homophobia in particular they blame the east london mosque for promoting hatred towards homosexuality according to the group this mosque quote has a long history of hosting hate preachers in response the east london mosque accused
the group of feeding and tea islamic hysteria the x. muslim council refuses to apologize saying it doesn't need anyone's permission to march for l g b t rights or here on this channel we heard contrasting views on the story a two to ghent people is always wrong with muslim or anyone else but criticizing bigoted intolerant ideas is entirely right and proper i hope the likes of peta and why have a little respect for the human rights stuff that is done over the years he's deeply misguided that what he supports an organization that has made it mission to demonize. islam religious belief. in this country around the world many of us who are marching or individuals from muslim heritage so i myself am a british pakistani who grew up as a gay individual in a muslim this is my community i have no interest in galvanizing hate against
muslims because i will be subjected to that same hate this group was targeting islam must homophobia it wasn't targeting muslim people or even islam in general the council of muslims has never criticized or condemned muslim people it is only condemned and criticized is the most extremists who advocate hatred and violence against the people if these people have left islam and that's their right let's accept that they got a right to live there why are they constantly upset. they need to get a life move on enjoy their life and their new freedom as they tell is us to leave the religion and then be silent about. kin across the world who are being victimized by muslim states is a request they are rampant islam the for big organization they are responsible for
promoting hatred against muslims now let's just say that is there a council the christians is there a council of us use a council of x. induce a council of x x where religion is legislating against people like gays we will challenge that and we will challenge it. and we're trying to inform ways holding signs provoke thought and provoke a civil war used to squash and dialogue your weekly returns and half an hour. let's. make this manufacture consent to stick to the public well. when the ruling closest protect themselves. the flame of. the impulse. to ignore middle of the room
signal. really low. level walk selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they're going. to stop spreading tell you that every gossip and public by file for the orders. of advertising telling you on the cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks that we along with all those watching her.
there. are a. ton of welcome to all is a part of the election of donald trump has polarized american society in many ways including in its attitudes towards clever and what's appropriate trial supporters still see him as a shrewd smart deal breaker the salt of the earth while his critics describe him as
the ultimate in the ramos worthy of nothing but contempt is there any middle ground between the two to discuss that i'm now joined by lawrence krauss as theoretical physicists and cosmologists as well as a merciless critic of donald trump mr krauss it's great to talk to you thank you very much it's true it's great to be here i think i'm a merciful where to go from that number to look at what i've been up for to kind of him let's talk about that but. a short while a little bit later because i want to ask you first about russia i know that many people in the united states believe that russian. just decides of the same coin but i beg to differ so i want to bring what brings you here to this country i came here for this amazing geek festival the to talk to thousands of people about so it's been an amazing experience like i'm just overwhelmed with the reaction and the response and the fact that people seem to really appreciate what i'm talking about absolutely you have a very big following here and i'm saying that. also
a certain degree of pain because. it's become increasingly difficult to bring people like yourself i'm just a taste of this country primarily because of the tensions between russia and the west have you had any do you have any hesitations about coming here. no the only only this station had was the difficulty of getting a visa frankly i wanted to visit russia for a long time because it's so different or seem so different that it was it was there was some tension but i've been here many many years ago and i want to see how things change absolutely you actually wrote on twitter that the last time you were here was sixty seven half a century ago and i assume visiting moscow back then was far more extravagant for a foreign there yeah special young person i was i was thirteen years old when was the fiftieth anniversary of the revolution first of all and i wanted to i wanted to see what it was all.
